There are so many versus threads out there for people deciding which school to go to... can't hurt to make my own I suppose.
OK, here's the dealio... I have FOUR DAYS to decide between SCAD and CCAD and I'm quite confused. I'm entering a scholarship contest Saturday (and will find out if I win that same day), and I originally thought that if I won, SCAD would give me an extra 5k per year, making my total cost to SCAD only 10k a year at most, so I would definately go. Unfortunately, I emailed a counselor who said that they would not add the 5k to my 20k scholarship, which really kinda sucks. SO... if I go to SCAD, I will be taking out 15k in loans and if I go to CCAD I will be taking 17k out in loans. I will be paying these back by myself. My money sense says "go to scad...", but I also want to go to CCAD because the location's more convienent and it seems more focused and intense. But another thing worrying me is that now I'm not sure of what I want to do (and since I'm only a senior, how am I supposed to know for certain what I want to do?! I haven't been exposed to much yet!). I THINK that I want to do illustration, but I might be happy doing animation or seq art. CCAD doesn't exactly have the animation department that SCAD does. But CCAD's foundations program has gotten great reviews, and it's a smaller school (which is good for me I think).
Also, I'm just going to throw MIAD in here... anyone know anything about it? It would be the cheapest for me to go to, but I've heard it's not on the same level as CCAD.
Any help or thoughts are much appreciated :3
